Police trespass compensation

If the police enter your home without lawful excuse then you may be entitled to claim compensation.

If the police caused any damage to your home or the property within it when they trespassed then you may be entitled to claim compensation for that damage also.

It does not matter if you rent your home and therefore do not own the property in which you are living. If the police entered your home without lawful excuse then you may still be entitled to claim compensation, speak to our police trespass solicitors on 0175 321 5096 or complete our online enquiry form and a member of the team will contact you directly.
